HISTORICAL SOCIETY MISSION STATEMENT

The Big Flats Historical Society elected its first officers in March of 1971.  The purpose of the Historical Society is to;

  • Promote an appreciation of our heritage by developing and understanding Big Flats history in the minds of all its inhabitants.
  • Relate the present to the past so that Big Flats citizens may more fully realize the changes taking place about them.
  • Cooperate enthusiastically with other groups and institutions in projects which contribute toward a higher quality community life.
  • Collect and preserve information, documents and objects of historical significance.

COMING EVENTS

The Historical Society potluck dinner meetings are held the 4th Thursday of the month at 6PM, September, October, January, February, March, April, May, June.  A dinner meeting is held the first Thursday in December to celebrate the holidays.  A program is held at each meeting.  They are held at the Big Flats Community Center, Maple Street, Big Flats.
